Text

Understanding Medical-Surgical Nursing, 6th Edition

A student-oriented focus helps LPN/LVN students to master safe and effective nursing care by developing the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills they need to excel in clinical practice. Clear, concise, readable, well organized, and easy to follow, it’s the text that prepares new nurses to make the connections. 

Davis Edge

Davis Edge is the online quizzing program that integrates seamlessly into the classroom to give students the additional practice questions they need to perform well on course and board exams. Handpicked preset assignments save instructors time, while actionable analytics let them take the pulse of how their students are performing in med-surg.

Instructors have the real-time information they need to monitor, track, and assess their class’ mastery of the content. They are able to easily identify the areas in which students are struggling, intervene quickly, and provide relevant remediation to ensure that students succeed and improve within following areas:

  • Comprehension and Retention: How well do students understand the content?
  • Participation and Engagement: Are students keeping-up with their reading and assignments?
  • Test-Taking Skills: Are students prepared for NCLEX®-style questions and improving their test-taking skills?

 An access code inside new printed texts unlocks Davis Edge as well as a wealth of online learning tools and resources, including an ebook powered by VitalSource.
